First Finish for 2017
Meadow's Mountains is officially my first finish for 2017. A project that came about because I couldn't shut the green scrap drawer.
Organic lines in the middle and the piano key border and stitch in the ditch on the skinny borders. AND did you count? Yes, 5 borders. I hate adding one, but here there are five - it does finish it up nicely though.
A fun stripe binding tieing in the greens, reds, and yellows thru this quilt. The back (actually an off white with a gold, brown, green pattern) was four pieces of cut-off from two other quilts' backing. Even with the left over and cut-offs from this quilt, there is probably about a yard of that left which will get fed into the fabric food chain.
I have a baby quilt and a wallhanging sandwiched up for quilting, but I learned long ago not to back-to-back quilt as my neck and shoulders suffer. So I am taking a day of play with plaids, checks, and stripes. This is a small portion of what I have.
I need over 200 units for that geese project and almost 400 broken rail blocks for something new. We are having snow, ice, rain, wind (again) so it is a good day to play - then back to business.
